    Please don't take offense, but the word "later" has become a synonym of after a year or never in these forums...

    Also, how much different are the firmwares for A5 and A10? At least in previous firmwares both were released simultaneously which makes me think that A10 could also have been given this new Android & beta quite easily.

    But anyway, I've got nothing to lose (I've already come to terms with the fact that I paid too much for the A10). I had also accepted that no other firmware would be released...

    Let's see if your company can restore some of the completely lost credibility and customer faith.

    This is quite absurd. WE are not getting any update for Andriod 7. I dont know why Egreat is taking so much time. Others like Zidoo, HiMEdia, are already using Andriod 7.
    Also poster wall refresh issue not solved still. Hope we get update to all and solution to all this month.
    Please Egreat don't make the thing true, what someone said "Egreat is going down !!!"

    @E_CS and @Nice Monkey tried with micro SD 1gb...robot appears but...the bar does not..so it seems egreat does not recongnize it. i did format in fat32...but weirdly the PC only says FAT when right clicking on properties.....ahh crapppppppp

    i have a 1Tb hdd usb 3.0 and i tried every thing possible : hidding partitions, logic, primary, 2gb,4gb or 8gb...nothing does it! as soon as egreat detect there is something in usb 2.0 port...the players seems to do nothing!
    on other port i seem to get to around 20% before the error shows up; tomorrow i will try to get 2 other usb flash drives and see...

    I am taking it easy...I think...:p

    But a new beta will likely be better than the one I've been using for a year, not much but some bugs might have been sorted out (and others, from what I read, introduced). So, while I had come to terms with the fact that there will never be another firmware, there comes one for A5, which is practically the same player as A10 minus the hard disk. Although I have zero knowledge on programming, my logic says that making the same firmware for the A10 would not be that hard, hence my complaint.

    I really do hope this time they mean it when they say "later" there will be a version for our boxes.

    I could go on and on, but frankly I feel like I'm bitching on (although I am a 100% right on this) and begging for something that I have already paid....
    :oops: I'll stop here.

    P.S. @nenito2k I managed to flash the Android 7 beta firmware when it came out, but I remember myself using lots of different usb sticks before finally succeeding. Why does this have to be SO HARD???

    Most likely because almost nobody would consider 17 changes within a year as “many”.

    I don't know what the changelog actually is compared with? Definitely not with the previous V2.0.1.2 beta. I think it is with the latest A8 Pro release as the focus is entirely on Poster 3. Also the release number went way up. Frankly have real hopes A7 finally works.

    What worries me more is the clumsy way the actual upgrade works. Never seen such a nasty thing before. Went myself twice from A5 to A7 on my A10 and both times it was a real struggle. That is not good. Lucky for me my A10 is still on FW 2.0.1.2 and just needs to be updated.

    @nenito2k:
    You are on Android 5 now, right? Did you try to install A7 beta 1 or 2 first and then go to beta 3?
